There are always trends in makeup and for the past year, contouring has taken over the beauty world. Now, the trend is lighter, and more focused on highlighting (or more recently called strobing). L’Oreal Paris L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminators and True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminators make brightening your face easy.
The desire for a luminous, glowing complexion is nothing new. But some of the techniques are so complicated, it can be discouraging. Sorry, 20 minutes to contour and/or highlight my face? That’s not happening. L’Oreal Paris has come out with two products, the True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator and True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator that make getting your glow on easy and uncomplicated.
The True Match Lumi Illuminators (Liquid Glow and Powder Glow) are available in three shades:
- Golden (W101/102), which enhances yellow and peachy tones
- Rose (N201/202), which enhances pink, blue, yellow and peachy tones
- Ice (C301/302), which enhances pink and blue tones
The Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator is really a cream formula that can be used under, over or mixed with foundation. In my experience from watching makeup artists at Fashion Week, applying under foundation gives the most natural look. The Liquid Glow formula has a slightly metallic sheen and doesn’t transfer once set; to apply use fingers or a beautyblender.
The Lumi Powder Glow Illuminators can be used multiple ways, since there are four shades in the compact to use individually or blend. You can blush, illuminate and/or contour with the Powder Glow Illuminator. As with the liquid, there is a face chart on the back with directions on placement making it easy to get the perfect look. There is a brush included for easy application.
L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator and True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator are each available for $12.99 at mass, food and drug retailers nationwide.
